Ipads in the Classroom!

Mrs. Felts 4th grade class engages in the creation of personal videos on their Ipads. The videos are based on their reading of The Trail of Tears.

GATE students were treated to a culinary experience by Chef Calvert.  He used vegetables grown in the garden to make a corn and sweet potato succotash!  Thanks so much to Chef Calvert, a Paine Intermediate parent, for sharing his talents with us!

Ways to Stay Informed


As a way to stay informed with various aspects of the school, many of our teachers and the administration have created "blogs" as another way to communicate with our parents! Below you will find a listing of the published blogs that are maintained and updated frequently throughout the school year. Take a moment to sign-up to receive updates as they are posted on each blog. 

If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact the school!

Red Ribbon Week Revised Schedule (Reminder)

Red Ribbon Week
Oct. 27th - 31st, 2014

Paine Intermediate

We are joining thousands of other schools across the USA in an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of using tobacco products, other drugs, and alcohol. Throughout the month, counselors will conduct drug awareness lessons for all classes according to the state counseling standards, and then dress up days during this week will help emphasize awareness too.. Daily themes for the week revolve around PI’s focus on student leadership; “The Leader in Me is Drug Free!”

*Please note: Since the Hewitt vs. Clay game was moved to Thursday, Oct. 30th, we are switching the last 2 dress up days.. In support of our HT Huskies, we will now wear our Husky Spirit clothing on Thursday, and then the bright, neon colored clothing on Friday. Thanks for your understanding!

Monday- Hats Off to Being Drug Free!
Students are encouraged to wear hats/caps to kick off the week and to help show their commitment to being a drug free leader.

Tuesday- Don’t Let Drugs Erase Your Dreams!
Students are encouraged to wear appropriate pajamas to school to remind them that drugs can erase their future hopes and dreams. Students must wear or bring tennis shoes for PE!

Wednesday- Leaders are “Red-y” to Say No to Drugs!
Students are encouraged to wear red colored clothing to show their support for Red Ribbon Week as it is “National Wear Red Day.” Remember, leaders stay drug free!

Thursday- These Paws Won’t Touch Drugs!
Students are encouraged to support our school team and wear their favorite Husky school spirit clothing to show that Paine Intermediate Husky Leaders will make smart choices and stay drug free. Go Huskies!

Friday- My Future is Bright so I’m Staying Drug Free!
All students are encouraged to wear bright, neon colored clothing as they commit to make good choices and be drug free for their future.
